This recipe has been slightly tweaked from one by Katsuyo Kobayashi, Japans favourite TV cooking show host and an Iron Chef winner. It is so easy to make, but to ensure plenty of flavour, use the best quality tomatoes you can get. If possible, make it ahead and refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavours blend. This doesnt seem to keep well, so eat it the day you make it.
